2019th Cruise - Stonewall 50: Pride of the Ocean Cruise celebrating LGBT Vets and First Responders!


Pride of the Ocean gay cruise


Sail from the city that never sleeps and head to Halifax, a harbor town that moves at its own pace. Here you can climb to The Citadel to view the Old Town Clock. Bar Harbor will give you a chance to watch humpback, finback and minke whales emerge gracefully from the water. And when you’re in Portland, don’t leave without seeing one of the picturesque lighthouses or eating some mouthwatering lobster. These are must-dos in Portland – everything else is icing on the cake (or rather butter on the lobster).

Day 1 - Saturday, June 8, 2019
New York, New York

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise from New YorkEveryone loves New York and there are a million reasons why. Here are but a few: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, the Ellis Island National Monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Times Square, Broadway, Greenwich Village, 5th Avenue and Central Park.

One of the great thrills of a lifetime is cruising in or out of New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty, with her torch held high, beckons you as she has for decades. The skyline of Manhattan is almost mythical, full of great landmarks of mondern history. The early 1922 jazz musicians called any city an apple, but this was the big one.


Day 2 - Sunday, June 9, 2019
A Day at Sea

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise sea dayGet to know the Norwegian Cruise Lines Norwegian Dawn as you enjoy its many amenities, spa treatments, delicious cuisine, and scintillating events during our overnight passage to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Relax and enjoy your vacation onboard your ship. You can do as much or as little as you want.


Day 3 - Monday, June 10, 2019
Halifax, Nova Scotia

Admire the rugged coastline that surrounds Halifax, the world's second-largest natural harbor. This beautifully preserved city is Nova Scotia's capital and was founded in 1749. Take steps through history and climb to The Citadel to witness the Old Town Clock. The capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax is a charming mix of old and new. This is readily apparent in a walk around the area known as the Historic Properties. Enjoy the splendor of one of the finest harbors in the world by taking a water tour of the city. One of the city's most attractive areas is the Historic Properties Development, located along the waterfront.

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise - Halifax, Nova Scotia

Day 4 - Tuesday, June 11, 2019
Saint John, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise - Saint John, New Brunswick St. John, the oldest incorporated city in Canada, is a fishermans paradise. Saint John's history is evident in its weather-worn look, passing the tests of salt air, sea winds and a devastating fire that have all contributed to making Saint John the greatest little city in the east. Be sure to look for your ship in the port against the beauty of the Bay of Fundy from Fort Howe lookout. Experience the amazing Reversing Falls Rapids, Saint John's best-known attraction. Twice daily the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy rise faster than the river can empty. When this happens, the tide attempts to push the river back upstream, then the tide ebbs and the river appears to reverse itself and flow over the rocks, creating the appearance of reversing rapids.


Day 5 - Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Bar Harbor, Maine

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise - Bar Harbor, MaineBar Harbor was once considered a small fishing and ship-building community. Today, it is a favorite destination for people throughout the world. With Acadia National Park in our backyard, a visit to Bar Harbor affords the comforts and luxury of a classic vacation retreat, but also offers spectacular beauty and natural wonder for those who would prefer to spend their time outdoors. This coastal attraction has retained much of its charm since its glory days of the 1900s, when America's elite vacationed here in opulent summer cottages. Surrounding the rock-bound harbor is the world-famous Acadia National Park where the opulence of nature is on display.


Day 6 - Thursday, June 13, 2019
Portland, Maine

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise - Portland, MainePortland offers all the amenities of a big city: art districts, a vibrant waterfront, museums, parks and diverse shopping opportunities. But within minutes, you can be enjoying the view from an historic lighthouse or tasting a juicy, local lobster. A short trip from Portland lies Freeport, home to numerous clothing outlets including the famous L.L. Bean. Its a shoppers paradise. In the city, visit the beautifully restored waterfront, with its selection of charming shops and restaurants. The Old Port Exchange is really the heart of downtown Portland. It's a collection of 19th-century brick buildings originally constructed to support the vast export and fishing industries. Today, this quaint, restored area houses specialty shops, restaurants and pubs.


Day 7 - Friday, June 14, 2019
Newport, Rhode Island

Pride of the Ocean gay cruise - Newport, Rhode IslandDuring the 19th century, Newport served as the summer playground for the rich and famous. Residents displayed their fabulous wealth in the form of palatial estates overlooking the Atlantic. Today, these extraordinary and meticulously maintained homes line the city's famed "Mansion Row" and are a must-see for any visitor. Newport is best known for yachting events like the prestigious America´s Cup, but its streets hold some of the best-preserved Colonial homes in America. And, of course, there is the great row of extravagant seaside architecture where America;s industrial royalty built hugh and opulent "cottages" for the summer social season. Tour Vanderbilt´s The Breakers, Rose Hill, Marble Cliff or another of these elegant mansions.
